Franken Tourismus planned a bike ride.
December 5, 2019
The first stage of the Regnitz cycle path begins in Nuremberg at Wöhrder See and leads you on the valley route to Forchheim. The lake is not far from the Nuremberg train station, which you can reach by both local and long-distance trains. At Wöhrder See you will also find a beautiful city beach, if you still feel like cooling off briefly and swimming a bit before the bike tour.As soon as you get on your bike, you cycle along the banks of the Pegnitz, which takes you out of Nuremberg and takes you straight to Fürth. Beautiful parks and vast meadows accompany you on many sections. The Fegnitz and the Rednitz merge into the Regnitz, which you now follow northwards. In some places you cycle directly along the shore and can enjoy the view of the water. Most of the time, however, you drive through wide meadows and beautiful forests a little off the river. Shortly before Erlangen you turn to the Main-Danube Canal and follow the straight bank for a short distance. Between Alterlangen and Erlangen you cycle through the meadows of the Regnitz again. Over the meadows you have a beautiful view of Erlangen, which is not far away. If you feel like it, you can make a detour to the beautiful city.Behind Alterlangen you will be greeted by picturesque nature with vast fields and romantic forests. On the flat, well-paved bike path it almost goes by itself and you can enjoy the beautiful landscape to the fullest. On the way you will pass beautiful swimming lakes in Oberndorf and Baiersdorf, which invite you to take a refreshing break. Then you cycle back to the Main-Danube Canal, which takes you to the stage destination Forchheim, where you can enjoy the old town with its pretty half-timbered houses.
